Re: JSON for tables

HI @jd_alation,


I'm not so clear for your issue, can you please share something detailed?


For e.g. :
api type, connector, connect mode, screenshots, expected result, operation steps...

Re: JSON for tables

Hi @v-shex-msft ,

I created some datasets from the Power BI desktop application.

Now i am trying to access these datasets on listTables.png

After clicking on the Call Resource button i get the following error message



It seems , the datasets created through desktop application are not accessible from the rest APIs . But if we create a dataset from the rest API itself , such datasets are accessible . Below is a screenshot of getTables call on one such dataset
